    The Key Difference Between Jesus and a Socialist
    Letters, May 9, 2022, WSJ

    Prof. Alexander William Salter’s “Jesus a Socialist? That’s a Myth” (Houses of Worship, April 22) is certainly correct. But the reason
    is even simpler than Mr. Salter’s explanation. Nowhere in the
    Christian scriptures does Jesus teach, urge or even remotely suggest
    that the power of the state should be enlisted to enforce his teachings
    about the poor or any other subject. If anything, quite the contrary.
    While certain clerics may prefer socialism, that is only the
    sociopolitical view of individuals.
